    It was really an epic read but we all finished. Lots to talk about. Tolstoy liked by all. Want to read more.

    Hi all, I just wanted to say "hi" and sorry that I am once again not going to be able to make it to a meeting (I do miss you all BTW). But, I have an excellent reason why: I'll be vending at the Norwalk Oyster Festival! If anyone decides to come down after discussing Tolstoy's epic masterpiece, you can find me in the crafts section. Enjoy the book!

      Actually, I am going out of town on a last minute trip that falls over that weekend, so I won't be able to attend! Which is a shame because I"m actually loving W&P (to my surprise). Have fun and I'm sorry I can't make it!

      Thanks for letting us know, Jen. Hopefully next time? I agree that the book reads great (length aside). I'm also enjoying it much more than anticipated. Have a good trip.

    Why do you think Tolstoy talked at length about the history of the Free-Masons in his War and Peace?

      Groups like the Free Masons were prevalent during that time period in Russia and also it was a part of the character of Pierre and his attitude toward war, ie, was the beginning of his conversion.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
